bet for all americans, and that was what real -- asking that question of each other is what led us to write this book. >> host: given what you just said, and what is your take on what the itu is doing right now? when it come 0s to the worldwide internet? >> guest: the itu just finished their work. i can't say i've had an opportunity to eexaminer examine it in detail or have a chance to talk to a lot of friend who were over there. i certainly like a lot of other americans, am very worried about countries that believe that what we need to do is regulate the internet more or have countries simply suppressing both the expressions of speech as well as the economics of what the internet can be. there are certain countries that want to protect certain industries and have ideas in mind to do that. so, i would put myself as kind of nervous about that. i think we ought to be moving in the direction which is more about openness and economic growth and the free expression of ideas. >> host: reed hundt, when it comes to the internet and politics of abundance, your book, there's a real role for
hand. talk about it for a second. i bet most of us do. if we cothis we have done work to say we would save nearly a hundred live a year. a hundred lives a year each year. there's no price you can put on that. so if you step back and look at this, it's an opportunity to say,let just do the right thing. and invest in our roads, keep our citizens safer, create jobs, and have save a lot of money and not stick our kids with a big bill. so encourage people to work hard on this. i want to give a shoutout to the senator khan who stepped up to be a leader on the issue. i encourage other legislators to step forward in join him in moving this forward.

would manage to get along with them. i prefer the bet we didn't make. i'm in favor of the japanese to pay more. i'm proud of the fact when i was undersecretary for mr. cheney we got them to pay the $55 billion in desert storm. we didn't pay anything. we had a net deposit. one reason we were successful because the japanese needed it. the people in the persian gulf are too weak to manage on their own. they need us. i'm not sure we will be there when they need it us. we have within there ever since the british abandoned them which i think would have been terrible consequences, the fact there's been no serious effort to block energy from those from the persian gulf. it's because we've been there and we were there when saddam hussein invaded kuwait. i worry that the rebalancing may not be a rebalancing and may be a pivot as originally described and we will move from the middle east and, i can understand the desire to leave the terrible part of the world for people making problems there. i spent a good part of my career working in east asia. the one job you didn't mention, i think my fav
that matter since nice wrote that jennings sighed for freedom was enamored with freedom. well, you bet. those young men of learning would wracks the guys about spending one evening listening to the father of the constitution holds for us. jennings, the part of the wallpaper was present for hundreds of such discourse is and then the book, i developed it these days that jennings was able to absorb the theoretical underpinnings that would support his innate yearning for freedom and allow him to identify as a natural right of man. late february, 1837, jennings prepared the madison city has been washing 10 for future use by the widow, dolly madison. paul jennings had returned to lafayette square for the first time in 20 years. james madison died the previous summer and mrs. dolly decided she would make use of her city has been washing 10 and send jennings ahead to ready the dwelling. it was still february, but in anticipation of new administration, already the time is gathering a lot with that of springs first frost. the atmosphere must have reminded jennings of james madison's inauguration 28 yea
't have to bet the whole country up front on one outcome or the other. you manage risk more intelligently that way. that also allows very important politically for adaptation and flexibility. we don't have a national consensus on marriage, and we don't have a national consensus on marijuana. in my view, in fact, we won't on either of the issues have anything like an encompassing consensus any time soon but i think we'll get there. in the meantime, you need a policy. you don't want in concrete a policy in which time quickly underminds because it's not sustainedded by public opinion. delegating the matters to the states is a very good way to keep the policy at a level where it can adapt to changing public opinions as it has been doing on gay marriage. finally, delegating the policy gives you time to build a con consensus. if the supreme court were to come in now and order same-sex marriage, in fact, before it this very term, it would preempt the national debate that i think has to happen about what is the right policy here. that debate has a long way to go, and i argued that gay people ben
. if this happened to destroy currencies and i bet you something really bad. in the 1920s germany destroyed their currency and elected hitler. people say that's an over-the-top comparison. you worry about what comes out of destruction of currency. do people choose a strong leader were there enough people who still love liberty to say there is another way we can come out of this and that's involving freedom and free markets in the individual. it's important even if you're a minority in case something bad does happen and we have to change direction in a country that we don't go in the wrong direction. >> yes here. go ahead and take a back up to the back. >> ken meyer -- [inaudible] does he plan to commemorate the upcoming nato summit in chicago and anyway? >> i don't know. >> not that i know of. it strikes me is not the sort of thing he tends to do, so i'm going to say not. >> i don't know. not his usual style of paint. yes in the back row. >> question for brian doherty. looking at 2012, which presidential come if it's romney for obama, which victory would be better for the small incubating r
as growth sector, they are multiple. we are betting on a few of them and us as we were hoping to to gain the support of folks in the international community and the context of haiti. much is being said about the local investment the government is making in the tourism sector. again come the clichÉ of haiti as it is not a tourism destination. the level of poverty and everything else associated with haiti. guess i., as recently as the 1960s, haiti was one of the leading destinations in the region. and today, most turks working in haiti to meet and how that potential. that's why we're talking about taking ownership of developmental object is. we are convinced there are certain things we can do. the first in the region, in the world. there are many things that are rich culture weekend i'll. i think people will be attract it to what is happening in haiti if and only if we move beyond our perception of clichÉs. the tourism sector is finally put investment dollars in the government, working in partnership. so if you go away from port prints can you be surprised how many little businesses are
medicines, 19 of which i stopped. but you know what, we all make money off of that. i'll bet you that was $30,000, 40 minimum of profit in our current health care providers pockets. what to make sure we talk about things like sgr and value-based care to rethink about her patient because she did not take it care in my opinion. everyone is doing what they thought was the right thing and everybody made a lot of money. so the primary care physicians may be one solution to it. it's going to be crucial, but it will require far more than that. i'm a physician. i'm also chief executive of zÜrich of an organization that's a specialty group and we decided to go for it. a year and a half ago we said were going to go ahead, change all of our contracts, invest at least $25 million into putting the care transformation models and figure out how to contract with everybody, medicare and everybody else in the new system to see if we can do a better job with this. the interesting thing about that is how very hard that is. it's hard to get capital if you're an independent group as opposed to a hosp
